Hello, I've been trying to add to my name to the census of this page:

https://nomanssky.gamepedia.com/Census_-_Empire_of_Jatriwil But it appears the page has been protected and I cannot edit it. Is there some other way I can add myself to the census or another way I can edit it? Thank you!

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

That page was locked in August 2019 at the request of the civ's owner after some vandalism issues. I've sent them a note to see what their preferences are these days. Thanks!

Avatar for IronGrove

Oh that makes sense, thanks for the help!

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I haven't heard back yet - if you want to give me the information here, I can put you on the census. Thanks!

Avatar for IronGrove

The crafting section shows the old, obsolete freighter tech... I can't edit a template so I thought you could take a look

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Yes, the crafting macros DO show old crafted items. This is for historical purposes. If you click on the link for the page, that item's page will show the obsolete banner.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

I am fixing the broken pictures on Construction Parts, but I think that the individual pages of the items might need to be fixed, too.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

The images that are “broken” show a red x in a white background. I am replacing those with new photos, but some pages still need correction.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I've got a query that I can run to see the references of all the pictures uploaded by AK-85. I'll be sure and check to make sure the individual pages are referenced. Thanks!

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Thanks, that would be a great help. Very surprising how much damage one bad apple can do

I was just scrolling through a few lists and saw these... Something fishy going on here? I decided to take a look. I found this in Atlantisking2's logs. Why were these not blocked with the main User:Atlantisking1985

On the upgrade progression, it uses the standard starship Hyperdrive instead of Freighter Hyperdrive like it's supposed to. I'm not allowed to edit it so I thought you could take a look.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

OK, check and see if that's the change you were looking for. Thanks!

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

I put a few new images in on Construction Parts. I'm working on getting new images for all the red Xs.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Gotta say, we appreciate editors such as yourself who are willing to step up when needed. Thumbs up!

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

It was easy. I just used the cutting tool and some screenshots I took last month on my Xbox. Glad I could help. Also, thanks for showing me the ropes of this wiki.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Just for grins, did you know there is a discord for the nms wiki? You can find it on the talk page of the Community portal (if you do discord)

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Oh, I know. I don't currently have a Discord account.

Avatar for Thamalandis

Can you weigh in and decide on the topic of Measurements of star systems?

https://nomanssky.gamepedia.com/Talk:Star_system

The real problem is, since HG patched out the ruler (the distance to center by waypoint information) many groups have taken very arbitrary ways to measure their distance to it. I really wish to establish a geometry method instead of a method many seem to use that relies on "angle to center" and ONLY if done in the same zoom and perfect angle would even create comparable results. I really don't think we should accept those measurements. They are imprecise with huge error margins and never on the system.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I can take a look, but I'm certainly no expert on the subject <g>. I've added this to my to-do list in the wiki. Thanks!

Avatar for Thamalandis

I added historic context (showing the original 100% correct option HG patched out) and further used the method I explained on said historic values. It reproduces them 100% accurate... and not the terrible guesswork people do.

Again I WON'T check every wiki system. I got better things to do. But if people claim a record, I will go there, I will test it and I WILL correct them.

I request to be allowed to add the measurement method to the actual star system page to ensure some people see it. I can hardly do more than replicate historic 100% accurate values to proof it works correctly.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Absolutely add it. If you think it warrants a page of it's own, I'm also good with that. Then you'd have a specific page link you can send to someone who has possibly miscalculated.

Avatar for Thamalandis

I may as well link a pages subsection, same effect. The actual question is where to place it. I will definetly place an asteriks on the Euclid page for records of distance... so people know their values will be checked.

Avatar for Thamalandis

Sidenote:

Your friendlist has dead entries. Maybe clean it up.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

FYI, I deleted the Environment Control Unit page and rebuilt it using your code.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

I got together a temporary fix for Derelict Freighter but someone is going to have to get a new screenshot of one as the one I put together is not the most desirable picture.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I took your "salvage" shot and worked on it a bit

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Thanks. Just to be clear though, Peacebomb technically took the screenshot.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Hey I managed to get a replacement photo for Advanced Signal Booster. Also putting one in for the Upgrade Sigma.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Excellent! Thanks for the great work. And sorry that you got pulled into this situation. :-/

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

It's fine. No big deal, his account's blocked now anyways.

Avatar for Atlantisking1985

You are using my pictures, e.g. refiner recipes, that I created myself from scratch, that you have edited & reuploaded as your own. You have no right to them. You have placed some of my other pictures & guides back into pages that you had previously removed them from. Again; you have no right to them.

This does does not fill me with trust that you will do as agreed. You clearly wish to simply plagiarize my work.

You could have ran a bot to delete everything the day we agreed on this; but you did not. This is because you are picking & choosing which parts of my content to steal from me.

Me spending all night making many of the pictures into a cross picture makes it very easy for you to find & delete said pictures. Click one & it lists all of the identical ones for you.

As for screenshots; stop being lazy & go in game & get your own. Using mine shows a complete unwillingness to do what you have agreed to.

You better not lecture me on the law. When you submit any file, photograph, media, or article to this wiki, it becomes ineligible for copyright. You do not own these. Every editor and reader of this wiki has a right to these. Don't even talk about filing suit against Fandom, either, because your claim is baseless and could be debunked by a third grader.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Anything you can do to help is appreciated, and is one less screen we have to deal with <g>.

So no worries or apologies - thanks much for your help.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Thing is though, I play on an Xbox, so I will try, but it will not be easy

Avatar for Atlantisking1985

"pages seldom looked at.". Lol. Ok then. All of the main pages.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Hey, can I ask a favor? I need some help looking through the files of some joker named Atlantisking1985 who watermarked them all and he has a lot. I'm getting the ones on Starship now.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

How do I upload the new price of Repair Kit?

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Bring up the blueprint on your screen and do a screen shot. If you have editing software available, trim it to just be the blueprint. If not, upload what you've got and I can edit. Use the "Upload File" option under the Tools menu on the left.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

The blueprint was recently changed to be 1,800, and I don't have a screenshot of it. The only one I have was the old 12,000.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

Well, next time you get a repair kit in hand, give it an upload. Thanks!

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

I made you that Portal (Desolation) page like you asked. Here is the link: https://nomanssky.gamepedia.com/Portal_(Desolation)

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

I did the edits to the Portal page like you asked. Can you make sure that no one reverts them? Thanks!

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

I can't stop reverts without locking the page, but I'll keep an eye on it.

Avatar for Joaquinandujar

Don't worry just do what you can.

Avatar for Thamalandis

Give Thoslo to them. We auto-claim the Fade areas we explore due to exploring them. Alpha Minoris never played a major role in the backstory either. It is just a very prestigious area.

Due to the owner changes to systems - and our demand for Traveller led stations or administered stations, preferred capitals - we do not have those at the moment either way. So the homespots of The Guardians and The Synergy might change later on. It won't be in Alpha Minoris though...

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

What I'll do then is wait until they have enough star systems documented to show they mean business. At that point, I'll change the civilized parm over to them. Thanks!

Avatar for Peacebomb

Can I ask you to delete InExCor - Euclid, InExCor - Eissentam, and InExCor - Mobile category pages as they are not really used?

Avatar for Jabberwocky2008

Did you send me a question? I got a notification, but the link was broken and I could find it on my message board.

Avatar for Ddfairchildd

yeah, I deleted it after I sent it. Answered my own question <g>

Avatar for Thamalandis

The range was used back then to highlight the difference between classes. Today it kinda is the same but all ships can be upgraded to a certain slot size over time regardless of class which also can be upgraded. If you absolutely want to stick to integers, go with max. Today it is viable. It will just exclude historical ships in the catalogue.

Regardless, it should be rather normal to use strings nowadays and cast data after a TryParse worked.
